Are you planning a conference or expo that delegates from all over South Africa will attend? East London is one of the most convenient locations for an exhibition, as it is a halfway meeting point between major South African business centres like Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. The East London International Convention Centre (ELICC) and its partnership with the African Bureau of Conventions is set to become a prime location for conference organisers.
